In The Mean Time...
GRANTS PASS, OR – Stephen Williams Jr., 26, and Amanda Hancock, 21, have been charged with starving their 7-week-old son to death while Hancock was busy self-lactating online for paying customers.
Last month, and ambulance was called to the couple’s home to treat an infant who’d stopped breathing. Data Hancock would die later, despite best efforts to revive him. The couple was arrested on murder charges on Tuesday after an autopsy revealed the infant had starved to death.
According to the charging documents, the couple showed “extreme indifference” to human life by failing to provide Data Hancock adequate food and medical care. The couple admitted that they never took Data to any doctor appointments and didn’t participate in any prenatal care before Data was born.
Williams told investigators the baby was fed milk a few times a day, but he did notice the baby was losing weight. He didn’t call the doctor “because that was Amanda’s responsibility.”
One reason why the infant may have went hungry was because Hancock’s breast milk was being sprayed out of her nips for the enjoyment of paying customers.…
NEW PORT RICHEY, FL – Jason Rios, a paranoid schizophrenic, used a crowbar to beat his family, killing his disabled mother and 9-year-old niece.
Ernesto and Angela Rios were trying to keep their four grandchildren together after they’d been removed from their mother for substance abuse and placed in foster homes.
To makes matters even more difficult, Angela was wheelchair bound after losing her legs to diabetes. Also living in the home was their son, Rios, who family say suffers from paranoid schizophrenia.
On the morning of Feb 5, Ernesto woke his four grandchildren, Jenica Randazzo, 9; La’nyla Heater, 7; Chancellor Rios, 4; and Dominic Putnam, 13, for to school and hopped in the shower.
Soon after he entered the bathroom, Ernesto heard screaming. He rushed into his granddaughter’s room only to find La’nyla bloodied with severe head injuries and Jason on top of her with a crowbar. Ernesto was able to take the weapon from his son then forced him outside of the house.
The two boys, who were uninjured, fled down the street to the home of a retired police officer who went to assist the family, while his wife stayed with the children and called 911.…
NEWPORT, NH – Jerry Carrier is facing first degree assault charges after he shook his three-month-old baby again, the latest shaking the result of the 26-year-old man-child becoming upset at a video game.
In early January, police were called to a home after Carrier’s baby showed signs of distress. The child was taken to the hospital and released, only to return to the hospital the next day because he couldn’t keep food down. The infant remained in the hospital for a couple of days, police said.
Two weeks later, at a different home, a similar scenario played out. This time the infant was found by his mother and was described as limp with his eyes rolled back in its head, unresponsive, not breathing, and blue.
The baby was transported back to the hospital where it was determined that the infant’s injuries were the result of “non-accidental trauma” and were very similar to the injuries it had suffered two weeks prior while also under Carrier’s care.
Carrier, who has no fixed address, was on parole during these two instances for second degree assault, for an incident that did not involve a minor.…
FRANKLIN, TN – Kristi Clark, 34, and her 10-year-old son, Carter Oakley, were both killed Monday night after being struck by a semi on Interstate 65 while trying to help another family involved in a crash.
According to police, an SUV flipped after hitting some black ice just after 9:15 p.m. Kristi Clark and her son witnessed the accident and stopped to help the five people inside the SUV.
As the mother and son stood outside of their car on the side of the road, a passing semi was unable to stop in time and slid into the pair. Carter would die at the scene. Kristi would die shortly after at Williamson Medical Center.
Two of the passengers in the SUV were injured and listed in serious condition. The remaining three passengers were not injured.
“Kristi and her son, Carter, are heroes,” said Franklin Police Chief Deborah Faulkner. “These Good Samaritans put themselves in harm’s way to help a stranger. The goodness in their hearts that prompted them to do that will never be forgotten.”
Because of the extreme winter weather, Tennessee declared a Level III-State of Emergency on Monday night.…
After Reyes went missing, anonymous postings began showing up on social media that taunted Reyes’ family by telling them that Reyes was dead and giving them gruesome clues as to where his body could be found.
Eventually they posted the address of a vacant house where they said the boy’s body could be found. Turns out they were telling the truth. Reyes body was found under the floorboards of that vacant home on Sunday.
“It was a particularly cruel way to tell his mother and father what they had done but they made a game of it,” said Commissario Tirse Diaz.
On Tuesday night, police arrested four teenagers, aged 15, 16, 16, and 17, in connection with the brutal slaying. Because of their ages, the boys will be tried for the grisly murder in juvenile court.
As for a motive behind the killing, the state attorney general’s office said that it was over a girl.…
LONDON – Police have been scouring the city looking for a woman who approached a mother and her one-year-old son in a Boots Pharmacy and apparently tried to choke the toddler.
The incident happened in January and was captured by in-store surveillance cameras. Police have now released the footage that shows the woman walking into the store and approaching a woman shopping with her 1-year-old inside a stroller.
The woman can then be seen reaching inside the baby’s buggy. The mother first thought the woman was just checking out her child, but quickly realized the stranger had her hand around her child’s throat.
The woman had such a grip on the child’s throat that you can see her pushing the buggy down the aisle while the boy’s mother frantically grabs at her hand in an attempt to stop her. The mother succeeded in stopping the woman from causing any injuries to her son, but admits she was terrified and traumatized by the incident.
A store security guard would intervene and escort the sexagenarian out of the store.…
COLUMBUS, GA- Police arrested 26-year-old Domonique Smith after they say he broke into a funeral home to crack open a cold one, and to steal a bike.
Police responded to Hills Watson Peoples Funeral Service after receiving a call that the facility had been broken into. Police would identify Smith on surveillance video in the building at the time of the burglary.
Initially, the only thing amiss was the disappearance of a bicycle. But things got a lot creepier when it was determined that the corpse of a woman at the funeral home had been disturbed.
“The results of our investigation and the forensic examination gave us probable cause to believe that this individual had indeed sexually assaulted a dead body,” said Columbus Police Maj. Gil Slouchick.
Smith, who is homeless on top of being a corpse fucker, was located inside an abandoned building with the bicycle from the funeral home, stolen TVs and firearms.
He has been arrested and pleaded guilty to burglary, entering an unoccupied dwelling, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and theft by receiving stolen property.…
HOUMA, LA – Police have accused Richey Kiffe of suffocating four of his girlfriend’s Chihuahua puppies and cutting off the head of her favorite.
Kiffe and his ex-girlfriend, 37-year-old Suzanna Guthrie, have been broken up for a couple of weeks, but the split has not gone smoothly. Guthrie has already filed a restraining order against the 52-year-old and has been temporarily living with a neighbor.
Last week, the pair got into another argument regarding the lease and the care of Guthrie’s four Chihuahua puppies. Guthrie went to a neighbor’s to avoid having another fight with Kiffe, but returned to the home after Kiffe would not return her texts.
When she went back to the home, she was greeted with a horrifying sight. Right there, on the front doorstep of the home, was the decapitated head of her favorite Chihuahua puppy.
“Boom, looking at you right there,” said a neighbor. “A little puppy head about that big, dude. The head, it was clean cut, washed, everything.”
Inside the home, under a couch, were the remaining three puppies.…

OLD JEFFERSON, LA – Angeline Lodice, 26, was arrested in October after detectives viewed videos and photos of her performing oral sex on a 3-year-old boy and having sex with a dog. On Thursday, she was indicted and is now facing a life behind bars.
Police were contacted after one of Lodice’s relatives showed the child’s father the videos. Lodice, who worked as a stripper at a Bourbon Street club, would admit to deputies that she was the woman in the videos and said she believed she was drugged at the time they were filmed.
Lodice was arrested and charged with aggravated rape of a victim under the age of 13, pornography involving juveniles, crimes against nature and sexual battery. She was indicted on these charges last week and faces a life behind bars on the aggravated rape charge alone.
Her attorney said Lodice will will plead not guilty by reason of insanity. “I anticipate she’ll undergo both psychiatric and psychological evaluations,” Martin Regan said.
If doctors are able to determine Lodice did not know it was wrong to suck a toddler’s dick on camera at the time she was sucking a toddler’s dick on camera, she could be sent to a state mental hospital indefinitely.…
HESPIRIA, CA - Hunter Mastaler, 4, was attacked by his father’s police dog so severely that he had to have his leg amputated below the knee.
Michael Mastaler, a K9 officer of the Rialto Police Department returned from a two day trip to Big Bear where he had run a boot camp for at-risk youth. He let his 7-year-old Belgian shepherd, Jango, out of a large backyard kennel before going back inside where his son, Hunter, was playing video games.
Mastaler claims that in the span of 2 minutes while he was upstairs changing, his son opened the sliding glass door and went outside. Mastaler’s wife was not home at the time, having gone shopping with their 18-month-old son.
A short time later, neighbors heard Hunter’s screams as he was being attacked by Jango. Jeff Houlemard knocked down a fence to get to the boy and was able to pry the dog’s mouth open, releasing the child’s leg from its mouth.
According to Houlemard, “I kicked the dog, but it still didn’t let him go, so I whipped him around and pulled the mouth open.…
RIVERVIEW, FL — Keith Duke is facing murder charges after he slit his wife’s throat and then shot her multiple times in front of their three children.
On Thursday morning, 48-year-old Keith Dukes got into an argument with his 34-year-old wife, Michelle Dukes, inside their home while their three children were sitting in a car outside.
The argument between the couple, who have been separated for a year, turned violent when Duke grabbed a knife and slit his wife’s throat. She managed to run from the house, screaming for help.
Her daughters, ages 7, 13 and 14, saw their mother running away and got out of the car to join her. At the same time, a Waste Management truck driver was passing by and saw Michelle and her daughters toward him, screaming for help.
“I saw a cut going from one side of her neck to the other,” said the driver.
As he called 911, Michelle and her daughters ran into a neighbor’s house. But Keith wasn’t done, and he wasn’t letting a neighbor’s home protect Michelle from what he had in store for her next.…
Barra da Tijuca, Brazil - A woman in Rio de Janeiro has broken up with her fiancé after cameras she installed caught him viciously abusing her two French bulldogs.
Ninna Mandin suspected something strange was happening when her bulldogs started acting withdrawn soon after her now ex-fiancé, Rafael Hermida moved in with her. To get to the bottom of what was happening she installed a camera in her home.
What she found after reviewing the tapes left her feeling betrayed and sick. Two videos that have been making rounds on Facebook show Hermida picking up one of her dogs by its neck before slamming it to the ground with all his strength.
The video cuts to another incident of Hermida holding a small bulldog by its chest in front of him. He is seen head-butting the dog’s face before dropping the dog to its back and lifting it up by one of its back legs. He dangles the dog above the ground before lifting it higher, dropping it face first to the tile.…
Brussels, Belgium - Thoiro Mbow has been accused of locking three of her four young children inside a shed, setting it on fire and then calling their father so he could listen to them scream as they burned to death.
Mbow called her live-in partner, Hellmut Ulin, while he was at work twelve miles from their home after receiving a letter from his attorney demanding custody of their children.
She told him, “I will never surrender my children to you,” before informing him that they were locked inside a garden shed she’d set on fire.
“Listen to their screams. I can hear their screams but I will do nothing to save them,” she told him. “You’d better hurry but you will be too late to rescue them. They won’t survive.”
Ulin raced home in his car after calling the fire department. He also called his sister who lives nearby, but it was too late to save his daughters Omy, 2; Abbygail, 4; and Madyson, 6.
When he arrived at the home, the fire department had already extinguished the flames.…
GREENVILLE, NC – Martin Vasquez was arrested after a probation officer found the 47-year-old raping a 6-year-old girl in a backyard shed.
The probation officer was at the man’s home over the weekend looking for Vasquez’s son, who is on probation for breaking and entering. His search led him to a shed behind the home where he found Vasquez in the act of raping a little girl.
“All I could focus on was getting him away from the little girl. Of course, other emotions, as a parent myself, you know, were flowing high,” said probation officer Jonathan Thomas. “All I wanted to do was get him out of that situation, away from her.”
Vasquez was arrested and charged with first degree rape of a child. He is currently in custody at the Pitt County Detention Center under $1 million bond.
Neighbors told police that several of the neighborhood children play outside Vasquez’s home, lured there by a large sandpit in the backyard. Because of this, the Pitt County Sheriff’s Office is investigating whether Vasquez has assaulted other children and urge any parents with suspicions or concerns to come forward.…

Police say that on Saturday morning, Brown entered the home of 69-year-old Ronald Browning and attacked him with a weapon. Browning would die after suffering blunt force trauma to his neck and head as well as multiple broken bones.
The next day, in the neighboring town of Mabscott, police were called to a home where a break-in had taken place. When they arrived, Brown was still inside the home covered in her own blood and shit.

MUNCIE, IN – Christina Reber was sentenced to two years in prison after she assaulted her ex-boyfriend and ripped off his scrotum with her bare hands.
We first reported on Reber back in 2012, after she entered the home of her 57-year-old ex-boyfriend a few days after he had broken up with her.
After punching him in the head several times, a struggle ensued that lead to Reber getting a handful of the man’s plums and “squeezing as hard as she could.”
The man tried to free his balls from Reber’s grip, but she stayed latched on and began digging her fingernails into his tool bag. The poor son-of-a-bitch was eventually able to free his balls and call 911, but the damage had been done.
Prepare to involuntarily cross your legs, fellas. Responding police describe seeing the man with blood on his shirt, and observed “a long wide tear on his scrotum,” which had been “completely torn loose from his body.”
The man was rushed to Ball Memorial Hospital (seriously) where his nutsack was reattached.…
